Postdoctoral position in ERC-INDEX project

The research group led by prof. Piotr Nowak at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland is seeking highly qualified candidates for a postdoctoral position for up to 24 months in the project entitled Rigidity of groups and higher index theory, funded by the European Research Council.

About the project: the project focuses on analytic properties of groups and their applications in index theory and non-commutative geometry. Of particular interest are topics surrounding rigidity in various forms of property (T), group cohomology with coefficients in Banach modules and their relation with non-commutative geometry, K-theory of operator algebras and the Baum-Connes conjecture.

Requirements: A PhD in mathematics is required before starting employment. Expertise in an area closely related to the project will be a significant advantage. Good communication skills in English are expected.

To apply: please submit
1. a detailed CV, including a list of publications (if applicable),
2. a research statement,
3. arrange for at least 3 letters of recommendation.
All documents should be sent by email in PDF to the address

A short list will be made based on the candidates’ applications. Short listed candidates might be invited for an interview or a remote interview.
